Autumn with MAKE my MONDAY!

The first Monday of the Month seems a new theme at Make My Monday  and this time round it's Caz's choice all month along.  The theme is:-


This week we would like to see your autumnal pieces using a resist technique.
On the Make my Monday blog.
Caz has kindly provided a link to her tutorial.  I have really enjoyed making my DT piece.  As is pretty usual nowadays I have selected an 8x8 cream card for my base.
 I chose to go with white detail embossing powder to do my resist (I did mess round with others but liked this one the best).  I used the technique both on the background paper and the main focal panel.  A selection of distress inks were used:-  Rusty Hinge, Spiced Marmlade, Wild Honey and Aged Tea.
Stamps used were a selection of Elusive Images (main sentiment and focal images) with a text and swirl (which I cannot remember the brand). Use the words "Let the Adventure Begin" as autumn is always an exciting month as we are never sure what we are going to get in the UK - speaking of which hasnt it been warm lol? :)

My fellow DT buddies at MMM have put together some wonderful inspiration so I hope you can join us this week.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:-

Stamptacular Sunday - Wonderul Fall Photo Inspiration

The Hybrid Caravan Challenge - Autumn/Fall

Cupcake Inspirations - Photo Inspiration

Do you like my little apple?

Thanks for stopping by!  Suzanne ~x~

Really gorgeous creation Suz and looks like we used virtually the same DIs too.
I just love Autumn as the trees start to turn and the normally crisp mornings are great though no complaints about the current heatwave lol. My hubby says that there will be snow in late November - heigh ho, British weather!
Have a lovely week.
Hugs, Fliss xx
